This is the second daughter in this family that I had the good fortune to photograph. Such an intelligent and fun girl! I hope you rock your senior year, Sophie!

Now here’s a holiday I can really get behind! :) The photo above shows three of my vintage cameras which are only a small portion of my collection. It might be time to sell some on eBay since many of them have been in a box for several years now. :( At one time, before the girls came along, I went through rolls of film while playing with many of these cameras (particularly the Lubitel on the left). Sadly, it’s been quite awhile since I’ve done any film photography but I can’t bear to part with some of these cameras.

The Lubitel 166B, built in the 1980s in Russia, is a twin lens reflex camera (the kind where you look down at the viewfinder on top of the camera) that takes medium format film. I loved shooting with this camera and it was a staple in my arsenal during nature walks and mountain hikes. I fully plan to put this camera back into rotation and have some fun with film photography in the near future but, in the meantime, here are three images that I took with this camera between 2003 and 2005:

The Kodak Brownie Six-20 is another medium format camera built between 1946-1955. Even though the film for this camera is no longer made, I was able to use currently available film in it back when I first bought it off eBay. I’m not sure if I’ve scanned any of the film so I’ll update this post with a photo when I find it!

The Kodak bellows camera on the left was likely manufactured sometime in the 1930s or 1940s. I bought this one purely for its vintage aesthetics. :)

This year I’ve been slowly purging and decluttering and working on embracing a more minimalist lifestyle. It only makes sense that some of my cameras will be on the chopping block soon but I will hang on to a few favorites because they bring me such joy. :)

I’ve known Kira’s mom since before she was born and it’s no surprise that Kira has grown into such a kind, creative, and athletic girl! She’s a volleyball player and a cellist, loves to color her hair different colors and has eclectic taste in music. We had a great time during her evening session at Wonderland Lake and I’m excited to see what the future holds for this unique and talented girl!

Trey was super laid-back and easy going which made his photo session a breeze.  His friends describe him as funny, relaxed but motivated. He is musically talented and has a great sense of style. The fall is one of my favorite seasons and we had a gorgeous day for Trey’s session.
